Recently, I asked my friends in the faceborg matrix a couple of questions to start an open-ended discussion...
My friend Ricky responded with the following:
Ricky : minimizing yes, I think agencies over spend. I also think departments with a lot of complaints, law suits, or excessive equipment loss should be defunded a certain percentage yearly in order to improve service to the community, then yes.
But abolish completely no, sadly we don't live in a magical world of integrity and honor towards each other. For example current events, the Floyd protest had great potential for a change from how law enforcement should be handled when they are a threat, but a great majority of "protesters" threw it down the drain when rioting and looting occurred. With that negative action they hurt our own local people, economy, and infrastructure. There are many threats that will arise to opportunity to seize the land if there are no one to stop them.
You will always have the people that likes to hurt, steal, and extort. That is not counting foreign threats like cartels, gangs, terrorist groups, and countries who would seize the country. Not everyone has the guts or the means to stand up for themselves and that's the reason law enforcement needed.
